Ahhhhh it feels good to be posting an FO Friday today. Now, I've finished LOTS of items, which you can see with my Year of Projects posts; however, I haven't done an FO Friday post in an awful long time.
My finish this week is a knitting project. I find myself focusing more on knitting since I have the Navajo blanket still on the hook. That blanket sucks so much energy from me that its nice to be holding a different tool in my hand.
The pattern: My Garter Slipped Scarf (ravelry link)
I am a novice knitter and felt accomplished when I was able to make the whole scarf and learn what the stitches on the needle should look like before and after working a row. It gave me a little stronger confidence in my knitting which is nice. I really like how it turned out. I think it looks very nice - while its not difficult at all, it has a sense of "oooo" when you look at it.
I used Encore super wash wool blend. Its so soft and squishy... and WASHABLE! *smiles*
I will definitely be working this pattern up again.
